I have a question regarding a proposed setup I want to run.
I want to be able to take my TV and move it from one room to an outdoor covered breezeway when I want it there. I already have a Sonos Connect Amp in the room with the TV that is powering a set of outdoor speakers in the breezeway. I'd like to get a receiver with a 2nd zone HDMI that I could run outdoors and a second zone RCA output that I could run to the Sonos box line in.
I was considering getting a Onkyo TX-NR616 receiver but my question is will it pass the HDMI audio through the analog zone 2 or 3 pre-outs out do I need to step up to something like the Denon AVR-3313CI to make that happen? I have a Direct TV Genie box in the room that only has HDMI or digital audio outs.
